For the new 2.4Ghz system, X1 and X-Pro triggers the USB reciever is XTR16. The FT16 is the older 433MHz system. The two won't work together. The GT400 does hav a wireless control port.http://www.godox.com …ash_Gemini_GT_Series.html
The GT series will work with the XTR16 USB reciever just like the AD360 And is thus compatible with the X1T and X-Pro system, offcource without ttl etc.
IIRC (I don't use monolights, so I'm just soaking up stuff that elv writes over on Flash Havoc and stuff you guys write here), the reason that Godox is currently updating their plug-in monolight series to mk II versions is to a) build in an X/R2 receiver, and b) to switch the monolights to use the same ratio power settings (1/2, 1/4, etc.) that the speedlights do, rather than a percentage control that the older non-Mk II lights do.
I asked elv about the X-system/XTR16 compatibility of the FTR16-capable monolights in the comments threads on the Flash Havoc Godox system overview, and he wrote:
I’m not really sure how many of the older AC strobes which use the USB receiver system are even completely compatible with the XT16 receiver. I think a few people have mentioned quirks generally depending on what power scale the strobes use.
I'd actually say getting a QSII or GSII series strobe (both of which do 1/32), might make more sense than getting a GT and adding on an XTR16 receiver. Or possibly waiting to see if the GT series also gets upgraded to a Mk II.
So far, Godox has upgraded the QT, QS, DP, GS, and SK series to Mark IIs. I'm a little curious to see if they do this all the way down to the Mini Pioneers.
